Recently I’ve discovered the joys of Dexcom Clarity. Basically, it takes your Dex info and creates amazing little charts from your data!
I also had a span of just shy of 4 entire days where I did not hit my high threshold (180) a single time. Not once! Granted, I’ve been dealing with more lows than normal as a result, but it’s still exciting.
The above graphic shows my stats for the last two weeks… Estimated A1C of 5.9 say what!!?!? Of course, a true A1C test is for a 3 month time span so my A1C is certainly higher but I’m excited regardless!
This graphic is my all-time best blood sugar day. Amazing!!!
These images compare my average from the past two weeks against my average for the two weeks before that.
These graphics are so invaluable. I’m in awe with technology…
Tomorrow I turn 26 years old and I officially become too old to be covered under a parent’s insurance policy per Obamacare.
I’ve known it was coming for a very long time. I remember sitting in the Bigelow cafeteria at Western Michigan University at 19 years old and healthy, with my husband (who was my fiancé at the time) and watching the tv coverage of Obamacare and first hearing about the until-26 provision.
What I didn’t know at that time was that it also covered you even if you are married. I didn’t find that out until a couple days after I was diagnosed at age 22 when the doctor’s office called and told me that my dad’s insurance was going to work for my bills. Unbeknownst to me, he had kept me on his insurance. I bawled and bawled. Thank goodness he had!
About a month ago I saw on Facebook a listing for a virtual race called the Pug Run. It was an on your own, at your own pace, no pressure one miler, 5k or 10k and all proceeds benefitted a Pug rescue and rehabilitation in Illinois. Plus it had the CUTEST medals.. How could I say no!?
Then my wonderful friend Elizabeth surprised me by signing me up for the race, so I really COULDN’T say no.
